While in Prishtina, I took a day trip to Mitrovica. Originally called Demetrius in the middle ages, it was changed to Mitrovica following the Ottoman conquest. Represented by international media perhaps as dangerous or on edge, I assure you at the time of this – I had nothing but a good experience.
Mitrovica is an interesting example of seeing a city divided by two, in the Serbian side – they use the Serbian Dinar and on the Albanian side, the Euro (as the rest of Kosovo)

I spent ten days in Kosovo, and I’m here to say it wasn’t enough. What initially got me to Kosovo was the statue of Bill Clinton and his big hands (no honestly, Kosovo has an issue with realistic hand size). After that, it was reading that you’ll fall in love with the country and people, which I did. Usually, I try to keep low expectations, but Kosovo – I had them high from the start, and it did not disappoint.at.all.

I went to Meteora for a day to see the Monasteries and spend a bit of time in Trikala, a charming city nearby. I can imagine both these places to be full of life during the summer – but winter allowed me to feel more at ease.
If you don’t have the time to check out Trikala – that’s fine, but I wouldn’t miss Meteora at all!

Whether you’re going on a short or long trip – we’re all bound by the same, dare I say “annoying” airline rule of 100mls per carry-on.
Now if you’ve checked bags, it’s less of an issue because you’re more than likely to have your products in there. If you’re trying to save $$, have lost your bag too many times or just travel light – it can become a hassle.
Over the years, I’ve managed to create a pretty good list of things I can substitute so with that, click ‘read more’ to see a list of ways you can minimise your 100ml liquids.
Now there are so many websites on which travel application is going to make your trip better, faster, stronger… and the starting lyric of that should have been easier. I have a 64GB iPhone 6s plus and as I’ve only had this phone for a year or so, I’m not being asked to delete things… yet.
Although I still love using pen & paper to write things down and plan – I also like having applications to book, save & share with others.

After we left Ubud we headed for an island called ‘Nusa Penida.’ It’s situated between Bali and Lombok and known for its pristine beach views.
